The open house at Seniors Housing was a pleasant day spent showing off the suites. A great turnout of curious islanders enjoyed the lunch served by volunteers. We also sold Heriot Bay Tru Value point cards, raising a total donation that day of $1254. Thank you community.

A big thank you to Tom Rohan plumbing, for all of the time he is donating to the project. We very much appreciate the extra effort you are putting in Tom. Ross McPhee donated his crew’s time for the cement finishing on the first duplex. Great community spirit Ross, thank you. The cement is being purchased from Uplands at a reduced price. So thank you to the Stewarts and Uplands for this tremendous donation it has helped very much to keep the construction costs down. Cloverdale Paint of Campbell River is donating all of the exterior paint and oil stain - thank you from across the water.

The Board is still working on big decisions for the second duplex - things are looking very positive. Ministry of Housing and Social Development are giving us some more funding for the crew. Seniors Housing thank the local Legion for their support and their help in applying for a grant from the Legion Foundation BC/Yukon Command. Our fingers are crossed. Heriot Bay Tru Value store points are a huge bonus to the community and Seniors Housing appreciate that support - we are putting your points to good use.

Your donations are making this a reality!
